- The Happy Camp Ranger District represents the north-central portion of the Klamath National Forest and includes portions of the Siskiyou and Marble Mountain Wildernesses. The district stretches from the boundary of Six Rivers National Forest in the west to Grider Ridge in the East. The Klamath River, with its multitude of public access points, splits the district into east and west. At Happy Camp, where the "Wild and Scenic" Klamath River veers off to the east towards the town of Klamath River, Indian Creek follows Jefferson Scenic Byway north through the district to Oregon.
Recreation - Happy Camp Ranger District offers a host of water access points to the Klamath River along State Highway 96 as well as a number of campgrounds, access to remote lakes and streams, and two different national recreation trails: South Kelsey and Clear Creek. There are opportunities for stock packing and backcountry fishing and camping as well.
Climate - The climate within much of the Klamath National Forest is influenced by elevation. As throughout California, most of the precipitation comes between November and April. This comes in the form of rain at the lower elevations and some wet, heavy snow in the higher elevations. April through October are normally dry, with warm temperatures at the low elevations and moderate temperatures in the higher elevations.
The Happy Camp Ranger District represents the north-central portion of the Klamath National Forest and includes Preston Peak, Poker Flat and Bear Peak Botanical Areas and a portion of the Siskiyou Wilderness.
